Long Range Planning Information
A Long Range Planning Committee was formed in the Spring of 2017 for the purposes of gathering and analyzing information to make recommendations to Holy Family School Board. The major task for the committee was to identify 3-4 priority areas of work to be focused on over the next 3-5 years as the Holy Family School System moves forward. Recommendations will be made at the October 24th School Board meeting.
Listening Sessions were held at each of the four supporting parishes, then the information was compiled and the following survey was sent to all parishes and current families. The results of the survey are available at the following link:
The Long Range Planning Steering Committee presented their recommendations to the Holy Family School Board at the October 24th board meeting. The school board thanked the committee for their hard work and recommendations. The school board plans to have a work session in November to go through the recommendations and plans to have a final draft ready to approve at the November 28th meeting. Below is the copy of the recommendations made by the Long Range Planning Committee.
The next steps are to create action items as well as timelines for the work that is to be done over the next 3-5 years.
November 20, 2017: Email update from Mrs. Graven
I wanted to give you an update on our long range planning process. The Holy Family School Board met this month for a work session to discuss the recommendations made by our steering committee. This work session included review of the three priority areas and discussion of time sensitive action items associated with the recommendations.
The regularly scheduled school board meeting will be held on November 28th at 5:00pm in the LaSalle library. At this meeting the school board will vote on the final version of the Long Range Plan. One of the recommendations of particular interest is the move to a one-campus model. This recommendation of moving to a one-campus model is due to fewer students, keeping parish subsidies manageable and keeping student tuition increases to a minimum. There are critical timelines associated with a decision such as this, so a separate action item will be listed on our board agenda for this recommendation regarding the possibility of a building closure.
Once the Long Range Plan priorities are officially approved, the Administrative team will work closely with the school board to establish specific action items, timelines, and who will oversee each of the priorities moving forward. Progress of the Long Range Plan will be an agenda item at all school board meetings moving forward. The Long Range Plan begins now with the board’s approval and will serve our school community for the next 3-5 years.
Thank you for your ongoing support of our school!
Kimberly Graven, Chief Administrator
